The International Society for the Empirical Study of Literature and Media (http://www.igel.uni-goettingen.de/) is pleased to announce that it will hold its biennial conference in Chicago, July 6-9, 2016 at the Palmer House. IGEL and ST&D share a great amount of overlap in research interests of its members and have held joint conferences in the recent past (2008 and 2012) and so we hope you consider attending the IGEL 2016. Attached is the call for proposals.
On November 1, 2015, the program committee will begin accepting proposals for the upcoming conference to be held July 6 -9, 2016 in Chicago. You will be able to submit your proposals on the conference website (https://sites.google.com/site/igelchicago2016/). The submissions portal will be open on November 1st and the deadline for submissions will be December 15.
The conference committee plans to have the review process completed and authors informed of the status of their proposals by March 1, 2016.

We look forward to your submissions.2016_IGEL Call
